In my last post, I wrote about the issue of homeless youth who have trouble finding access to food. Along with other resources, NRS can connect callers to places where they can find basic needs like food, clothing, and shelters.  If the caller isn’t comfortable with speaking to the staff/volunteers at a shelter or other place providing basic services, volunteers at the hot line can speak to staff and volunteers at other organizations for you so you can be provided with their services. Crisis line volunteers can also help with information about what to do if you or someone you know is in need of basic needs like those listed.  If you’re concerned about your privacy when calling the NRS hot line, no calls are recorded.  Call 1-800-RUNAWAY for more info.
